Durham School Ph.D. Symposium

The annual half-day Durham School Ph.D. Symposium takes place on the afternoon following the annual Durham School Future of the Building Industry (FoBI) Workshop. Selected Ph.D. Fellows are invited to attend the 1.5-day FoBI workshop and then are asked to present their scholarly work to each other and to Durham School faculty and students. All trip-related expenses (travel, lodging, food) for up to 15 selected Ph.D. Symposium Fellows enrolled at peer institutions are covered by the Durham School.  Fellows are doctoral students who will graduate in this year or the following one with Ph.D. degrees in Architectural Engineering, Construction Engineering, Construction Management or a related area, preferably pursuing research in the broad areas of high-performance infrastructure, sustainability, occupant comfort and well-being, and/or safety.

For 2024, the Ph.D. Symposium will take place on Thursday, May 23, from 1-5 p.m. at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
